“Job seeking is a similar process to prospecting leads”

1- Make thorough research:

2- Don’t apply through job offers, prospect your recruiter:

  • Enterprise news shared on LinkedIn or the website blog…
  • Recruiter’s news
  • Complimenting the recruiter on something he/she have accomplished, a post he/she shared, or an article he/she wrote
  • A common interest or point you share with the recruiter

3- Stand out with your CV:

4- Create and develop your personal brand:

  • Focus on the entity’s values. If it doesn’t align with yours, then it’s not worth the shot.
  • Don’t underestimate your skills, neither overestimate them.
  • If you resonate with an entity’s values and aspire to work in it, you can apply even if there is no job offer out there.
